COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everything we love about classic German Pilsner with a hoppy Bohemian twist. Pils is a bright straw colored lager beer with playful carbonation topped with beautiful white foam lace. Delicate lightly toasted malt flavors underscore noble German hop character. Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils.

12 oz bottle poured a very clear, light yellow with lots of noticable fizz. Descent herbal hop aroma. Tastes like a german pilsner. Hoppy and dry with that distinct lager aftertaste. Crisp, clean and refreshing for the style.

Not a classic pils and all the better for it. Terrific spicy / grassy / floral notes from the hops without tasting like a wannabe IPA.

lb4lb (2532) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Pours golden with a medium lived white head. Smell is really bright and nice. Light sweet grain and bright clean citrusy hops. Taste is very crisp, dry, clean and bitter and spicy. Faint clean malt flavor is overpowered by the hop bitterness. Very crisp and bubbly carbonation and a good body. Great pilsner, and definitely one of my favorites.

gendv138 (1215) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle (bottled 10/8/13) poured into a tulip. Pours a clear straw yellow with a finger off-white head. Nice lacing for a pils. Good carbonation streaming up the glass. Smells of lemon/lime citrus, wheat, hay/barnyard. Tastes of lemon/lime citrus, piney hops, grassy, lager yeast, herbs, spices. Light body but not quite thin.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Appearance: pours bright clear yellow gold with a modest sized tight white head.

Aroma: Big grassy Euro hop nose, biscuits and a touch floral.

Taste: Mixture of grassy herbal and spicy hops. Very dry pale malt. Bready. Mouth slapping twang finishes with sharp clean bitterness. That twang brings you back quickly for the next sip (or gulp.)

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with average carbonation, not too rough for a pils.

Overall: Great googly moogly! So drinkable, so tasty, just clean sturdy crisp beer. I’ve been sucking back Firestone’s pale offerings for years now with great joy, and am glad they’ve mixed it up with less sweet malt and Euro hops to break away from Pale 31/Union/Double Jack. You may have a person in your life who is leery about jumping into craft beer, this might just be the beer that converts them.
